Earlier this summer, young volunteers from St. Margaret’s Parish cleaned up garbage along Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village.
They were joined and celebrated for their volunteerism by Councilman Bob Holden and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.
Here’s what Holden had to say about the cleanup:
“We went through the 70s and 80s, and I remember the days of trash all over the cities, you couldn’t go on the subway without graffiti everywhere. We’re getting back to that and it’s unfortunate so our young people are now stepping up and saying we’re going to help out.”
